We encourage faculty to draw upon the Libraries' collections, technology, professional staff, and facilities to enrich their teaching and promote student learning. We provide expertise, tailor our instruction to faculty needs, and aim to make students comfortable navigating the library's rich resources, including archival and special collections. Our instruction includes customized activities that facilitate classroom discussion, student-led inquiry, and critical thinking. As part of the Libraries' services for faculty, we offer the following instructional services:
Orientation to the library's collections, technology, staff, and spaces
Course-related instruction on subject-specific tools or collections
Specialized instruction on citation management, digital humanities and digital publishing tools, geographic information systems (GIS) software, or social science data analysis software
Introduction to digital collections and related services to support teaching and learning
Custom research guides and learning objects created in collaboration with faculty
